XBOX Live problems with Belkin N1 router

I've been trying for days to figure this one out.  I have the Belkin N1 F5D8231-4 wireless router and I have been trying to connect my xbox 360 using the xbox wireless usb adapter.  I entered my WEP password and it connected to the router and passed every test up to the Xbox Live connection.  I tried disabling the firewall on my router and putting the xbox in a DMZ and it still couldn't connect to xbox live. 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: XBOX Live problems with Belkin N1 router

I suggest setting this up with a WPA encryption rather than WEP encryption. This should get ya setup without a problem. Also, I've noticed live to be a bit buggy since Christmas. If you continue to have troubles after trying this call 800-4my-xbox. The recording will tell you if they are having network issues.

I bet this helps!

I have a small problem with a Belkin N1 wireless router modem, we used to have a 2wire modem (basic telstra one with 1 ethernet prot) and that seemed to be faster than the new Blkin modem, when im running...

Very possible that the 2Wire is slower. I have had a ton of complaints about all kinds of 2Wire devices. As a suggestion though, check their tech support site to see if there may be a firmware or driver update for the modem. I had a Linksys router once that kept kicking me off and was crazy slow when it was up and working. A firmware patch fixed both.

Downloads locks up - Belkin N1 Wireless Router

I had the same problem. My Belkin N1 Router was constantly dropping the WiFi connection (every few minutes). I tried several solutions I found on different forums:
Change the channel selection from Auto to a specific channel -- I tried all 13 channels, but no improvement.

Update the firmware to the latest (Beta) version -- still no improvement.

Finally I enabled "Protected Mode" and the connection seems fine now. Hope this helps, and good luck!
